Solved Odd Scan Results From AVG 2013

Avg / 2013

Specs: Windows 7, Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T7100 1.80GHz / 4 gigs
I just upgraded AVG 2012 to AVG 2013. It looks really cool, but the first scan I did brought out very unexpected results. The first "threat" it found had to do with an AVG 2013 file. Why would the program try to remove part of itself? Half of the rest of the results showed files from Spybot - Search & Destroy, which I trust, but I understand that there may be conflict when using multiple spyware/virus protection software. And the second half of the results showed files from Google Chrome. By now, I do not even know what to think about the results. Is the early version of AVG 2013 messed up, or are these actual harmful problems?

As an additional note, the "infected" AVG 2013 file and Spybot - Search & Destroy files were in C:\ProgramData, and the "infected" Google Chrome files were in the AppData part of C:\User.

Download and run Malwarebytes free from this link:

Update it and run a quick scan, if it finds anything please include the log in your next reply.

I already have Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I updated it and did a full scan. The scan took 7 hours and didn't find anything. So what now?

Yeah it's fine. I have avg, spybot, and malwarebytes. Spybot will find things when I don't scan in a month, but malwarebytes doesn't find much. I take care of my computer. I use the anti-virus, anti-spyware, and anti-malware programs as an extra precaution. I was just curious about the avg. I did a second full scan with avg. Same results; no more and no less. Have you used AVG 2013 yet?
